Polly Presents: Pollygamy: The Story of Kalypso

March 1, 2010

Haven’t had time for the site lately, but had to show support to a very talented artist and homie Polly. He just released Pollygamy: The Story of Kalypso, and unlike most projects/mixtapes that get released these days, this one actually has a concept to it. The project follows the story of a young man named Kalypso who sells is soul to devil in order to become a successful rapper named Polly, but quickly realizes fame can’t solve all of his problems. You can have everything you want, but at the end of the day you won’t have love, and that’s Pollygamy. I think everyone can relate this theme to some aspect of their life and you should take the time and listen to the hard work put into this well thought out project. Tracklisting after the jump.
